Biological effects of oil pollution : a comprehensive bibliography with abstracts by Melvin Light( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography is a compilation of abstracts of literature on the biological effects of oil pollution. Comprehensive coverage is provided on oil spill incidents, toxicity, tainting, behavioral effects, physiological effects, biodegradation, effects of cleaning agents, analyses for petroleum hydrocarbons in tissues and other related topics. Over 1200 references with abstracts are included. Rapid access to and cross-referencing of any given abstract is provided by use of a permuted index that lists alphabetically the keywords and corresponding citation number assigned to each abstract. The bibliography should be a valuable reference tool for oil pollution researchers, environmental scientists, federal, state and municipal planners, administrators and other decision makers. (Author)

Deepwater port inspection methods and procedures( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Deepwater Ports Act of 1974 gives the Secretary of the Department of Transportation and, by delegation, the U.S. Coast Guard, specific authority to regulate the design, construction and operation of Deep Water Ports (DWPs) off the coast of the United States. Some of the regulations deal with safety and prevention of oil pollution. This study is one of several providing information for future regulations dealing with pollution. It identifies and assesses inspection methods and procedures for the Oil Transfer System (OTS) of DWPs. Recommendations are made for inspection methods and procedures that would provide an effective means of minimizing accidental oil spills from the OTS of DWPs in U.S. waters. The recommendations were based primarily on a cost-effectiveness analysis for both commonly used and technologically advanced inspection methods and procedures that were considered to provide the best available technology for DWPs in U.S. waters. Inspection methods considered apply primarily to the components of the OTS, onsite, during normal operations and also to components of other systems whose failure could affect the integrity of the OTS. Failure of components and subsystems of the OTS, which contributed most significantly to the risk of oil spills, were identified in a system safety analysis. (Author)

Disposal systems and techniques for oil and hazardous chemicals recovered from marine spills by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Existing and conceptual equipment systems are presented for transport and disposal of spill cleanup debris. Each system is categorized and discussed in terms of possible operational conditions, applicability to different types of oils and chemicals, and capacity for the solid debris constituent. Additional data include cost, dimensions and weights of key equipment elements, transportability, and crew requirements. For oil spills, 13 disposal equipment systems (plus four auxiliary systems) are summarized based on literature and descriptions of past disposal experiences. Many floating and hazardous chemical spill debris may also be handled by the described systems although some modification is necessary to prevent recontamination of the environment, hazards to the crew, and deterioration of equipment. Conceptual methods for handling of hazardous wastes include special truck-towable containers and field-sealable bags. The oils and chemicals listed in the U.S. Coast Guard Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS: CG-446-1, Jan. 1974) are used as a basis for this study. (Author)
